The 11 Questions from Nia:

What inspired you to start and what inspires you to keep blogging?
I started as part of my fashion course, and I continue because not only do I love doing it but it keeps me in the fashion loop in my own chosen way!

What is your most prized possession? 
At the moment, my new Zara leather jacket which was a present from my mum, post to come!

If you could travel, where would you go? 
Probably back in time, I would definitely change a few things, but I guess we cant have regrets.

How would you wear your hair on most days?
My hair is wavy/curly, and long, so I leave it wet put mouse on it, scrunch it and let it dry naturally.

What is your favourite blog post to read?
I think we all love a bit of Tavi of Style Rookie. 

What beauty products can't you go without?
Mascara, I have long eyelashes and I'm guilty of piling it on.
Carmex cherry, for the chapped lips. 

What colour are you nails at the moment? 
They are lilac and mint with dots and little flowers, I blogged about them on my neighbouring blog, Stray Nails.

Where would you like to be in 5 years time?
Hopefully have travelled around a bit, completed an internship/placement, starting my career in a fashion/costume company and thinking about starting my own business!

What is your go to items in your closet?
At the moment, my faux leather Topshop leggings with my sleeveless coloured chiffon top. Great for any occasion and most weather!

If you could choose 1 lipstick colour what would it be? 
Deep red. I got given one in a goody bag from mulberry, its from the kate moss collection and its amazing.

What social media sites do you use? 
I use pretty much all of them! But the ones I use the most are Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Its hard not to with them all at your fingertips on the old iphone.
